Gobblers Knob Professional Review and Guide

"Funny name, big mountain. Gobblers Knob supposedly earned its moniker during the Wasatch’s mining heyday, when miners raised turkeys on the mountain’s slopes. Today, those slopes are the playground of backcountry skiers and snowboarders. Gobblers is the highest mountain on the Big Cottonwood–Mill Creek Canyon Divide, where long, wide runs spill from every aspect. While skinning access is done from both sides, the shortest and most straightforward route is from Butler Fork in Big Cottonwood Canyon. Conversely, the best skiing and snow quality (such as the infamous Alexander Basin) is on the Mill Creek side, so many touring parties use shuttle
vehicles for a Gobblers Knob traverse tour. Avalanches are very common in this area,
so be mindful of the snowpack before heading out."
